    I just got into archery a few months ago and recently bought a diamond victory bow was this a good choice?
    Also what is a good draw weight for me?
    Im only 12 but i can pull the 50 pound draw with ease.

    Welcome to the site and the sport...
    The victory is a good bow. As for the DW, whatever feels good without causing any discomfort.
    How much are you shooting?(how often and howmany arrows per session?)

    During the week i do not shoot at all because of wrestling practice, which ends in the beginning of february. Once that is over i will shoot alot. As for the weekends when im not asleep i shoot all day. I take breaks when i get tired but i probably shoot about 10 arrows each time.

    There is really nothing to maintain except for waxing the string occaisionally and a visual inspection before and after every shooting session.
    Get some string wax and rub it into the string once or twice a month. The biggest thing is your arrows, ESPECIALLY if they are carbon. Check them before you shoot, everytime you shoot. Look for cracks and signs of damage, just give them a flex before you shoot them.
